Immunisation
1 Antibodies can be found in the cell membranes of white blood cells.
2 When a virus infects, the body produces many lymphocytes.
3 Each has a slightly different shaped antibody (due to mutations in the gene for the antibody protein).
4 The lymphocyte with the most closely fitting antibody then divides quickly to attack all of the virus cells.
5 The lymphocyte with the correct antibody is then converted into a memory cell.
6 This memory cell allows the body to produce antibodies quickly if the body is infected with the same virus.
7 The memory cell can survive for around 10 years.
